San Bernard National Wildlife Refuge

Description:

Gaze across the rippling marshes and ponds of San Bernard National Wildlife Refuge and it's easy to imagine Texas as it was before settlement. Clouds of snow geese in winter or a warbler "fallout" in spring further convince any visitor that they have stepped back into earliest Texas. Less than half of the refuge is open to the public, leaving a vast landscape was wildlife sanctuary. Yet, a drive on the 3-mile auto tour or hike on one of the three hiking trails can take up a full day's workth of wildlife watching.

Directions:

From Lake Jackson: Take FM 2004 southwest for seven miles. Take FM 2611 south 4 miles to FM 2918. Drive one mile south on FM 2918 to CR 306, then west on CR 306.

Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
